Watch The DeLorean Hovercraft In Action

fb share tweet share

Have you ever wanted to fly through space and time in Doc Brown’s DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future? Well, sorry to get your hopes up, but inventor Matthew Riese didn’t build an actual flying time machine. He did, however, spend years constructing a DeLorean Hovercraft replica that rips through the water instead of flying through the air.

Matthew Riese is a 28-year-old inventor from San Francisco, California. He turned to Kickstarter two years ago to help make his dreams a reality. His Kickstarter project is now closed, but the page is still available to see the incentives he offered possible donors, ranging from your name engraved on the interior of the floating car to a 30-minute ride on the open water. Check out his Kickstarter video:

Ask Biff A Back To The Future Question And He May Hand You This

fb share tweet share

Actors field a lot of questions. Actors primarily identified with a single property field a lot of questions about that specific film or movie. You can imagine over the years they’ll hear a number of the same queries time and time again. What do you think the ratio of Star Trek to T.J. Hooker questions is for Shatner?

That definitely seems to be the case with Tom Wilson, better known to legions of fanatics as Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future trilogy. He’s been asked the same questions so many times that he reportedly carries around this sheet of Frequently Asked Questions just in case someone wants to know something about Back to the Future. Here’s the FAQ…

This summer, the movie Back To The Future celebrated the 27th anniversary of its July 3rd 1985 release date. Since then, the series remains one of the best trilogies of the past 30 years. It still remains relevant as a part of 80s pop culture. The team at On The Set has put together an extraordinary video cataloging the various locations of Back To The Future’s past and present.

The latest contender in the “How Much Will I Regret This When I’m Sixty?” competition is this fine gentleman sporting a tattoo of Back to the Future‘s flux capacitor across his chest.

Amazing Back To The Future Behind The Scenes Photos

Unlike a lot of movies from the 80s, Back to the Future holds up. Even its sequels, mostly hold up. Unfortunately since it was released in the 80s we didn’t have the kind of access we have now to see what was really going on behind the scenes of the BTTF films. But it’s never too late to peek behind the curtain and find out how they made the DeLorean fly.

The following photos are fantastic behind the scenes shots we discovered on Retronaut. These are some of our favorites, they have even more…

Back To The Future Lego Set May Flux Into Stores Soon

fb share tweet share

Two things that defined much (maybe too much) of my childhood, Back to the Future and LEGO, may finally come together in one glorious moment of nostalgia. Through LEGO Cuusoo—a website where inventive types can share ideas for new sets, and, with popular support, see their concepts become a reality—a crew has been working on creating a kit that includes the iconic DeLorean time machine along with a little Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). The whole set up is a bit like Kickstarter for LEGO.

With the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future fast approaching (2015), this project is inching closer and closer to becoming real. It just hit the required 10,000 supporter mark, and has moved from a simple “idea” stage to a phase where a “LEGO Jury” reviews the project. A bunch of marketing and design folks will test the idea for playability, safety, and to see if this is true LEGO material or not.

I haven’t played LEGO in years—they lost some luster when a temporary feline houseguest used my LEGO pile as an impromptu litter box—but this set is calling. The plans include nods to all three films in the trilogy, including the original DeLorean…
